BACKGROUND/AIMS: Traditionally, patients with acute diverticulitis undergo follow-up endoscopy to exclude colorectal cancer (CRC). However, its usefulness has been debated in this era of high-resolution computed tomography (CT) diagnosis. We assessed the frequency and outcome of endoscopic follow-up for patients with CT-proven acute diverticulitis, according to the confidence in the CT diagnosis. METHODS: Records of patients with CT-proven acute diverticulitis between October 2007 and March 2014 at Sandwell & West Birmingham Hospitals NHS Trust were retrieved...

The modern clinical practice is characterized by intensive introduction of innovative technologies for improving treatment and diagnostic procedures, minimizing their impact on the patient, complications rate and economic reasons. One of the priorities in this area is both diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy. The degree of practical use of innovative endoscopic technologies depends on not only the quality of care, but also their economic reasons. Endoscopic treatment has become the method of choice for gastrointestional bleeding, extraction of foreign bodies, obstructive jaundice, polyps of the gastrointestinal tract, achalasia, esophageal strictures, etc...

BACKGROUND & AIM: Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) is commonly used to detect upper gastrointestinal (GI) neoplasms. However, there is little evidence that longer examination time increases rate of detection of upper GI neoplasia. We investigated the association between length of time spent performing a normal screening EGD and rate of neoplasm detection. METHODS: We performed a retrospective analysis of data from 111,962 subjects who underwent EGD as part of a comprehensive health-screening program from January 2009 to December 2015 in Korea...

Capsule endoscopy (CE) enables evaluation of the entire mucosal surface of the small bowel (SB), which is one of the most important steps for evaluating obscure gastrointestinal bleeding. Although the diagnostic yield of SB CE depends on many clinical factors, there are no reports on quality indicators. Thus, the Korean Gut Image Study Group (KGISG) publishes an article titled, "Quality Indicators for Small Bowel Capsule Endoscopy" under approval from the Korean Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (KSGE)...

The current era of healthcare reform emphasizes the provision of effective, safe, equitable, high quality and cost effective care. Within the realm of gastrointestinal endoscopy in adults, renewed efforts are in place to accurately define and measure quality indicators across the spectrum of endoscopic care. In pediatrics, however, this movement has been less defined and lacks much of the evidence-base that supports these initiatives in adult care. A need, therefore, exists to help define quality metrics tailored to pediatric practice and provide a toolbox for the development of robust quality improvement programs within pediatric endoscopy units...

BACKGROUND AND AIM: The significance of examination time of esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) for asymptomatic examinees is yet to be established. We aimed to clarify whether endoscopists who allot more examination time can detect higher numbers of neoplastic lesions among asymptomatic examinees. METHODS: We reviewed a database of consecutive examinees who underwent EGD in our hospital from April 2010 to September 2015. Staff endoscopists were classified into fast, moderate, and slow groups based on the mean examination time of EGD without a biopsy...
